Alex Galeana - Executive Director
The Board of Children’s Campaign Fund Network (CCFN) is delighted to introduce our new Executive Director, Alex Galeana. Alex brings a remarkably rich combination of experience and tremendous energy and enthusiasm to his new role as ED of CCFN. This new name also introduces Children’s Campaign Fund’s sister organization, Children’s Campaign Fund Action. Our new network brings enhanced capacity in advocacy, education and electioneering to deepen our influence to promote state policies that facilitate a thriving present and future for every child and their family with an emphatic commitment to those impacted by racism and poverty.
Alex began his career with organizing and legislative advocacy. As a student experiencing homelessness, he served on the Student Senate for California Community Colleges and successfully wrote and lobbied for passage of a bill allowing his peers to use their school’s shower facilities. After this, he worked as an Organizing Director for NextGen America, where he helped flip one of the most competitive congressional districts in 2018, CA-10. From 2018-2021, Alex was the Managing Director of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC) Action Fund, where he ran the largest BIPOC voter engagement program in Colorado in the 2020 cycle and helped elect more Latinx city councilmembers into Denver City Council than in any point in the city’s history. Doing this was important to Alex, since, as a DACA recipient, he recognizes that building electoral power is critical in pushing our elected officials to pass pro-immigrant policy. Alex continued his commitment towards BIPOC voter engagement during his time at Strategies 360, where he provided electoral, fundraising, and organizing guidance to various progressive organizations and emerging 501(c)(4)s.
Most recently, Alex served as the New Mexico State Director for America Votes. In this role, he oversaw the state’s C4 and independent expenditure table tasked with 3 key election objectives, all met. These included flipping one of the most competitive congressional districts in the country, NM-2, and helping re-elect the only Latina Governor in the U.S., Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. Alex is excited to begin this new journey with CCFN and build long-term political power for children, youth, and families.
New CCF staff, including our recently-hired Deputy Director, will be announced soon!
